I can speak for BF3, and This setup will be sufficient for low to mid settings (multiplayer), if you want acceptable FPS at 1080p wich im guessing you want to play at. But i'd highly recommend getting more RAM. RAM is cheap and more doesn't hurt for being more future proof. BF3 has its problems with 4GB and less RAM systems, it shouldn't, but it has.. lag, crashes etc.. especially if you have a 1GB VRAM Video Card.

So would something like this be better then the 7770 seeing as it has 2GB VRAM ?

-Geforce GT640 2GB DDR3 ?

Now, your graphics card should not have any issues running at minimal and recommended performance.
The CPU will not bottleneck in any way so you will not have any issues with performance loss.
You have plenty of RAM to spare since most applications will never go over 4 unless you are rendering or recording.

In conclusion, you can and will be able to run at med-high settings with plenty of FPS to spare.

Your config is fine. You'll have to turn off a few settings and lower some as well. Depending on what FPS you consider fine then all the settings can be changed to meet that. You'll most likely have some of the MXAA, AA settings off and be able to play on medium with 30+ frames on the lower side.

Also try and get at least 8gb of ram, it'll help a lot.
